We don't have a garage at our house. We have a "shed". Our next house will have a garage.. especially if we live somewhere where it snows!
But for now we work with what we have :)
I usually hang plain grapevine wreaths that I make on the doors.
This year I wanted some color so I made these little wreaths.
I first wrapped the wreaths with burlap but it still was a little to plain for me.
So I picked up some flowers and got out the hot glue gun.
I choose to use yellow because it is so cheery and pops against the white of the door. I had picked up two little bird houses at the dollar store and painted them yellow and orange and just set them in the middle of the wreath.
I also had seen so many pendants floating around on the internet so I had an idea to make one to hang over the door.
I used burlap and cut out triangles and then stenciled "WELCOME" using black paint. I also wanted to see what would happen if I stamped on the burlap and how well it would hold up to the elements.
I cut apart old jeans and used the material to frame the triangles so the triangles wouldn't unravel. I left the edges unfinished on the jeans thinking if they unravel it might add to the look. I then sewed the individual pieces onto a piece of pre-made bias tape for hanging.
I made this in the spring and it has been hanging up all summer - it has weathered very well.
I don't know what the candle holder originally had in it but I added a mason jar and filled it with sand and added the candle. I picked up the old chair at a rummage sale (for free!). I put one of my grapevine baskets on it and filled it with flowers for color.
I thought I would add a side shot of the shed also :)
And that's my little shed :)
